Semroc IRIS Build Part 19 Rear Color and Lugs

I used some aluminum Monokote trim material for the silver area behind the rear band. I used aluminum because the silver Monokote looked a little too metallic and shiny.

The lower launch lug was wrapped with the same trim material. I didn't wrap it all the way around, but left a narrow open strip of exposed lug for gluing.

A small rectangle was cut away for the lug to sit in. the lug was glued in place with wood glue.

The upper lug was painted white and glued to a masked rectangle on the upper body. Both lugs were lines up using a 18" length of launch rod.
